What Is No Win No Fee?
We promise to always offer you a no win no fee service for any personal injury or delayed flight claim. No win no fee is also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) and this means we agree to work for you on the basis that we won’t charge any fees if the claim is unsuccessful.
We do this so that you have no risk to making a claim and it enables us to help you receive justice. We also purchase an After The Event (ATE) insurance on your behalf to cover any legal costs should you not win the case.
However, if you have an existing legal expenses insurance policy such as one included in your car insurance, then you won’t need an ATE policy. Whatever your particular circumstances, we will advise you on how to protect yourself against any costs and how we will recover the best possible compensation amounts from the other side.

Using a specialist no win no fee solicitor such as Bott and Co is important to make sure you are fully represented with expert legal advice when you make a compensation claim against another party. They will be represented by a legal team and so you should get the best team of solicitors possible – that means us,

Using our no win no fee service means that you can claim compensation with no financial risk and with confidence that you have one of the best legal teams in the country fighting your corner.
When Does No Win No Fee Apply?
If you don’t have a pre-existing legal expense policy when your accident occurs then you will need us to purchase an ATE insurance policy on your behalf otherwise you may end up having to pay the fees yourself. If you have a legal expense policy or an ATE policy then you won’t be liable for our costs in the rare event we don’t win your case.
Because we only receive costs if we win it means we are all the more determined to make the claim a successful one and our track record of winning 99% of our claims over more than a decade, shows that we are a safe option for handling your compensation claim.
What Do I Have To Pay?
We win 99% of all our claims but if yours is one of the 1% that isn’t successful then you still won’t have to pay anything. Our Conditional Fee Agreement means that we limit our costs no matter how much work we do on your case. The result is that when you win your case we will never charge more than 25% of the total damages (for flight delay claims we charge £25 per passenger and 25% + VAT of the total compensation amount only when we win) so you keep the vast majority of your compensation.
We do this since April 2013 when the Government slashed the fees that solicitors could recover from the other party by 60%. In order to continuing providing the public with a genuine no win no fee service we’ve had to include a small percentage of your compensation to cover our costs.
